I've got a 93 NA that's got that interesting Teal color that seems to be a little different depending upon the lighting. It's probably the best car I've ever had and by far the most fum to drive!

I purchased Probe GT (a definite mistake!) right after becoming interested in Import Racing & Tuning. Now, I'm upside down on my loan (meaning I owe more than the car's worth), and I'm looking to buy a Senor Dos. Any suggestions???????

Best sites what i have seen. Reliefs pain while saving up for own MR2. In Finland Naturally aspirated MR2 costs three times more than Turbocharged version in USA. Turbocharged is not even available. Lucky you!

Hi All... I'd like to purchase an inexpensive Greddy exhaust for my '93 Non-turbo MKII - new, used or demo models all OK. If anyone has one for sale (especially in the Bay Area) please email me privately. I'd also appreciate hearing any opinions from non-turbo owners who have done this upgrade in conjungtion with a modified air intake (K&N, powerflow etc.) regarding performance gains (especially dyno verified) as well as driveability and exhaust durability. Thanks!

First of all, sorry about the "x" test. I am borrowing this computer and
I am not allowed to leave an e-mail address. The fate of the MR2 and
other small, fun cars is tied in with safety/perceived safety. I would
feel confident in an MR2 and I would love to own one, but there is a
wretched cancer spreading like wildfire out there on the roads today.
The SUV craze. With it comes such horrendous vehicles as the F-150,
Dodge Ram, Range Rover, Toyota 4-runner, and other rediculously tall
hideous creations. All the above stated vehicles have bumpers (hell,
the whole FRAME) that are at an altitude that renders all the safety
systems in a "traditional" height vehicle worthless. Side impact beams,
bumpers and the rigid structures that back them up, these critical items
are designed with the height of the other cars in mind. Now that one
in five vehicles on the road are giant SUVs, the chance of getting
steamrolled over has gone up, way up. People don't feel safe in a fun
little car when they are surrounded by these monsters. It may not be apparent that
five-six inches more height is a problem, yet in the most serious
collision, head-on, the MR2's bumper (or any typical CAR'S bumpers)
will first contact the SUV's front tires, meanwhile the SUV's bumper
has easily mashed through the softer materials above the MR2 bumper.
Now the MR2 is pushed downward and its crushed upper unibody forms
a rudementary ramp to guide the SUV up and onto the crushing MR2.
In a very heavy front collision it is entirely possible for the
SUV to land IN the car. And side impacts? If some drunk in his SUV
runs a light and t-bones you, his bumper is over your side impact
protection and crushing your shoulder/head. The manufacturers are selling
this sense of off-road adventure and safety to the masses who will never
go off-road and who will be safe at the expense of whatever they hit.

Thank you for that happy, cheery, idea but part of driving is defensively. It's the same if you own a motorcycle. But anyway here in Cinci ,OH we just got hit with a bunch of snow. All I can say is it takes a special driver to drive a MR2 in the snow. I am now looking into snow tires. Does anyone have any brands they swear by when it comes to snow tires. Thanx. Happy driving.
Thu Feb 5 15:59:25 1998
Well I've finally passed the 40,000 kilometre mark in my MkII Turbo. Bought it at 36K on the meter for a disgustingly low price. Anyone else out there got lower mileage than me? As far as I know I've got the lowest in BC for an SW20 turbo, but I'm not sure about the rest of Canada or the States. Any other Vancouverites interested in street drag racing? I know all the spots, just crowded with Integras waiting for a beating (and some Golf's that think they're fast too, snicker)! =>
Thu Feb 5 16:20:27 1998
does any company have a aftermarket turbo for a 85 mr2
Fri Feb 6 07:20:47 1998
My daughter has a 92 NA. She claims that passengers are getting "shocked" when they reach for the door handle to exit the car. Could the power windows or door locks be the culprit? Anyone have a similar problem?

Hello Toyota owners! I am currently without a Toyota. :( I owned an '89 Celica GT for a little over 8 yrs. (loved it) Anyways, just wanted to complement all of you on your cars, and on your website! I am currently in the process of starting a local import enthusiasts group in Terre Haute, IN and would like to pass along my sympathies to those who also live here, and to extend an invitation to join our group.... We are in the first stages of the group, but so far it looks like there is my '95 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS-T, an '89 Supra Turbo, '88 Prelude, '89 Integra, '92 Talon (we made an exception), '95 Mazda MX-6 (v6 ls), and a '92 Mazda MX-3. Like I said, we are just getting started (maybe a week and a half into it!) Anyways, thumbs up on the website, and thanks for the space to include my thoughts! (if any of you get a chance, check out www.dsm.org or www.mw.dsm.org) Thanks again.....and make sure to blow some Mustang 5.slows off the road!

Hey hows it going everybody? Well I currently own a 1991 N/A MR2 and
I was wondering if anybody had any advise on the new HKS Super
Mega Flows for my car. I'm thinking about purchasing one and am
kind of skeptic about using a sponge. I heard that there were problems
with the sponges before because they kept breaking apart and getting in the engine but that the new ones are fine. I going to being purchasing within the next week and would appreciate any advise or help on the subject matter. thanks....

well well well... the battle of the imports is coming at the end of the month.. needless to say i was disapointed when a total of about 3 MR2s attended the last one in October.. So if you are in the southern california are, and want to drag that MR2 of yours past those Hondas, then come on out on Feb 28 and March 1st... try to catch me breaking into the 13's with only NOS and slicks... catch me if you can.. for more info go to battleoftheimports.com

Mon Feb 9 00:13:48 1998
the old body style mr2 lines aren't as sleek as the new design. I don't care for the old, but the 91 and newer have great potential.

When they said "Big things come in small packages" they MUST have been talking about the MR-2.

This is a great page. I have an '86 silver mr2, runs great but had some problems in the past(i.e busted head gasket, and body damage like rust. My dream car is either the '91 mr2 turbo or the brand new mr-s's that thing is bad ass.

I've looked at several late models as an interesting Toy to play with as middle age approaches. Interesting site, very informative!

Randy Garrison (ww-tp01.proxy.aol.com)
Just a little reminder...V-6's fit into MR2's but I need a manual trasmission from a '97-'98 Camry V-6. If anybody knows the whereabouts of this transmission please e-mail me. I build V-6 5-speed Camrys all night long but my friendly security officers would probably question me why I'm taking a transmission out of the plant, ya think? Please, send help in form of an e-mail...my baby is waiting on a heart transplant. I desperately need to go faster but if you go too fast you might be last. Words to live by or die by depending on your point of view. Long live Toyota...maker of the great MR2.

I live in japan and I have always loved the mr2 design, I was wondering if you have any pictures of the convertable mr2 that is in Japan? Also, their is a complete listing and owners booklet in Japanese about the mr2 that is very interesting. It gives you all the parts listings of upgrades and tire sizes and even engine parts. The book costs about 20 dollars and is a good buy. I was wondering if you ever seen it?

I have a bright red, 91 Mr2 Turbo. I've suited it up with a HKS VPC, Greddy Profec B boost controller, Greddy turbo timer, MSD 6BTM ignition box with Blaster 3 coil, Nology Hot wires, Sard Blow off valve, autometer boost guage, custom 3 inch cat back exhaust with dual 5 inch tip, tweak the turbine on the stock turbo to better the compression. On the ground with 17 by 8 chrome 5 star rims with 215/40/ZR17 in front and 235/35/ZR17 on the rear. An HKS turbo upgrade with an intercooler is on the way as I speak. My best time on the 1320 is 12.78 sec. I should break the 11's with my new turbo. I know a special way of achieving higher boost on the Toyota Turbo for just $5.00...... Yep! you could hit 12psi with just $5.00...................Even higher , but not recommended.........................................

Les Harrison (p53-falcon-gui.tch.virgin.net)
Can anybody tell how and where i can get my hands on a TRD2000GT bodykit for my 1990, MR2 Turbo.
I also need a Greddy or HKS,[or similar], performance exhaust for my car, a used or new system would be OK.
I dont mind paying for shipping costs, so you dont have to be in the UK to sell me your Exhaust.
This little car has got to be the one of the most underated to ever hit the streets......Loads of Fun !
If you own an MR2 and live in the northwest of the UK, i know of a really good garage that specialises in MR2's, they are just outside Liverpool.
The guys know what they are doing with Mister Two's, they are honest with their estimates and they are not expensive.
If it is mechanical repair, servicing or paintwork/accident repair they are the guys to speeak to.
If you want to use their services give me a call and i will get you a good rate..........Thanks......Les.

I own a 97 mr2 (turbo) and I just love it! It goes really really fast and I love the noise you can hear from the back, too. Before I got it I was worried that mr2s are not very useful because they have room for 2 people only, and the booth is small too, but now I just do not care about those matters. I love them just the way they are!!!!

Chia Yang (spider-to10.proxy.aol.com)
I feel this is the only place that I can trust to put up my "baby" for an adoption... He is a '93 MR2 non turbo. He has a Greddy exhaust, S&N air filter, 17" OZ aluminum rims all around w/ 215 in the front and 235 in the rear and the Spiralmax. For those who does not know what Spiralmax is, it is a simple stainless steel device that goes in the air intake hose. It creates a cyclone motion as the air passes through it. Works like magic... This is just on the performance side. He also has a New Alpine (3 cd changer in-dash) stereo unit, and some other extras. He has 70,000 miles and he keeps all the maintainance receipts as well. He has ever been "bad" nor has gotten in trouble with other "kids" in the blocks. He is clean all the way around just a couple of scratches. I hate to depart from him but I have a bad back and can not play with him like I used to. I am looking for someone who is willing to take good care of him and show him the ropes....

P.S This site is great for MR2 owners does anyone know of one for the Celica??.

Sun Feb 15 22:03:26 1998
We are w/ the Southeastern US IMOC (my "laughing" 86 and I).
Just had our Southern Fried IMOC meet. 15 MR2's- only 2 Mark I's though, Oh well, no meet's perfect. These meets are a great way for enthusiasts to get together and talk about our favorite topic. I can only hope that all you enthusiasts out there can take part in IMOC meets. Nothing beats the rush and attention you get from the common public when they see you w/ 15 other MR2's
in a convoy driving down a beautiful coastline.

I have an '85 MK1. My poor baby was hit by a beat up old Ford Truck. My rear air spoiler was destroyed. I was wondering if any one had a BLACK spoiler for an '85. I will settle for an '86 but I would prefer a spoiler without the tail light in it. I'm sort of a purist when it comes to my car!

I am the proud owner of#16375 1985 MR2 (and a non-descript 1986 for parts). Thanks to your FAQ's page I think I am ironing out the warped disk situation and other quirks.
Since I love this little beasty so much I would like info on starting a Toronto Ontario chapter of an MR2 club, if you have such info. Please pardon my email address - I had the 95 Civic Si Cpe before the MR2!
Just the other day I saw the identicle car I was driving on the 401 and we shared a glance, a smile, a wave and a sense of "Ya, this car is awesome". Have to start a chapter!
Wed Feb 18 10:11:28 1998
I'm running an 225/50/15 VR Toyo tires for my 91 N/A, these tire(rear tires) tend to worn out really fast, they only last around 20K miles and I mean they conpletely worn out. I'm just wondering if any one out experience the same problem, please share the Info.

Great web site. I love my '91 turbo It has 101,000 miles. But I am getting some leaking hoses. And of course the first one was located around the turbo and cost me $550 to get replaced. Am I the only one having this problem?

I just found this web site now (by chance). I used to have an MR2, but I traded it for a Celica just before christmas, however, I am trading that in tomorrow for another MR2 basically 'cause I hate the Celica (front wheel drive - PAH!!!).

For all you speed seeking MKII NAer's out there, you have to pick up the March issue of Turbo & Hi-Tech Performance. There is a MR2 that has a 5SFE with a turbo on it!!! They claim 350 to 375 HP!!!!

The rear right side(passenger side) tire of my 91 Mr2 n/a is always wearing out faster than the left side tire. Is this a common thing? Does the Mr2 transfer its power to the road through the right rear wheel? Anybody knows? I am not familiar with the Mr2 drive train.

I have a 1991 Turbo and yes I LOVE it. Today I changed the fuel filter and yes
it was somewhat difficult. Tomorrow I'm, going to attempt to change the coolant, if I can find how to drain it. Any suggestions.

I have a 1990 MR2 and I think it is by far the best car I have ever owned. I like the look of the new MRs but don't want to part with the one I have now.

I got lucky and found my 89 n/a white MR2 that I have been looking for.
It was manufactured in june 89. I know there were only 5914 imported ones. Does anyone know what was the last vin# for 89. Sure is different than my 86.

Hello everyone. I just wanted to say hi, express my delight with your website and let you know that I own a 1987 RED MKI SUPERCHARGED MR2. I love my car. I recentley was driving down the road and happened to look down at the odometer and watched as it rotated to 191,000. The car is in great shape. I had some rust taken car of ansd a new paint job puit on but other than that the car runs like the day it was created. So I hope anyone with doubts about purchasing an MR2 sees this and furthermore I hope anyone that has one continues to have the same luck that I do.
Just a quick fact: I found out a while back that the MR2 was actually first a car developed by the Lotus company. Lotus had doubts as to how many sales the car would get and they sold the design to Toyota. If anyone has any other information on this topic send me some email.

Just want to say thanks to all of the MR2 owners, who reponded to my questions that I posted a fews days ago about the fast worn out on my tires. Just bought a set of TRMotorsport typhoon wheel with Toyo proxes T1 Plus (www.tirerack.com & www.toyo.com). I Could not wait any longer to put a new wheel on, currently running snow tires due to the weather in Cleveland,Ohio.

I once owned an 86 Mr2 until I was in an accident early september. I loved everything about that car and know it kills me to see it lifeless on my drveway. Although, It was only hit in the front leaving the engine in a perfect condition. Because it would cost too much to get new radiator and some frontal cosmetic work, I am force to look for a buyer. Because I love the Mr2 model and the Mr2 club so much, I was thinking about buying a 91 or 92 Mr2 Turbo with the insurance money.

Hey! Great site!
I got my first MR2 this past summer, and it's a GREAT car! i had an unfornate "altercation" with a "keep right" sign, and another student at the college I attend got wide and broadsided me...so I got ANOTHER MR2 earlier today. I'm going to combine both cars (Theyre both '86s) and keep lots of teh extra parts. I'm going to have an extra engine and gearbox, and was wondering what woudl be a good plan of attack for possibly building the car up into an even better corner-cutter that it already is...

Best site on the net. I am from Montréal and i am a proud owner of a 1991 Mr2 Turbo. Best car i ever drive. My Mr2 has a home made boost controler (15psi) , home made fuel cut defender, K@N filter and sraithg pipe exhaust(213 wheels hp). My car is a lot faster than my brother 1995 Mazda RX7 turbo, and beleive me, he don't like that. Mr2 rules!

I have had a 1991 non-turbo MR2 since October of 97. It has 68000 miles and still runs great. Even 135 horses is enough to blow these brand new Mustangs away. I'm seriously into this car now and would like to get more info on any MR2 accessories I can get my hands on. I had the car repainted TOYOTA super white with pearl in the clearcoat. It's sweet but I want any performance and interior accessories I can get. Can someone tell me where I can get a catalog or something?

I just bought a '91 Turbo 2. Was wondering if anyone knew how to get one into the upper 12s or low 13s. I have a manual boost controller and a homemade K&N filter system that replaces the filter box and resonator. Also I plan to gut the cats and add a Dynomax muffler next week. Any suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated as I HATE Mustangs, there is a 1000 in my town!!!
